I was working as a maid in the home of a family in a nearby city, and they did not treat me well. I wanted something better in my life, but I could not think of that because I had a small brother and sister at home who needed food. I would think of them at home with hunger and put efforts into my cleaning, but still the family I worked for treated me badly.
One day a teacher from LWCO came to my house. She handed me a pen and said, “In our schools, we solve our problems with a pen.” She brought me to the school where I shared my problems with the other students. My fellow students listened and gave me suggestions to help me.
Now I am a happy student of LWCO. I am proud of this school and I love my teacher. She gave me the pen that changed my life. I can read and write now, so I work at a business where I make more money and am treated with respect. I am very happy with my work. I still go to school to learn more and help other women like me.
Thank you everybody for this school!
